for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and all the infrastructure that was here. because of this transfer, the american taxpayer gets

recycling at home and use these bins you see behind me. i do not want this to become a psa for our recycling efforts, although that is always good, and remember, it is the kids teaching the adults, which is always good. but this is good for the environment, good for the economy, and a san francisco can do this, cities across california and cities across america can do this. i will remind you of the great line by michelangelo, who said that the biggest risk is not that we aim to hawaii and miss but that we aim to low and --. it would have been easy for us to have a goal of 50% recycling rate by 2020. a lot of states, a lot of cities across the state, that will be tow%8x4ç:vw1qs8mna ++%uq when you do that, you get people to organize that quality of imagination, where people in the private sector and public sector, using the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit coming up with new ideas and attitudes that may seem untoward or a little controversial or extreme at first, but suddenly, when you peel it back and look back two or three years, you go, "my gosh, that makes so much since." if you make

us. today is a major milestone in our sf park program. it is a new system of managing parking in the city and county of san francisco. the mta was fortunate enough to receive a $25 million partnership grant to look at ways to help with congestion in urban cities and find a way to do with pricing. rather than looking at toll booths and things of that nature, we thought it would be a more elegant solution to look at where the cars are going better actually trying to park. by making parking easier and getting better data, we believe we will have a strategy that will reduce congestion on city streets. over 30% of the contestant dickcongest -- congestion is related to automobiles looking for parking. we want to provide better data in terms of the sensors on the street. they will have a real time information needed for 511, through the website, or through their smart phones to receive information as to where parking is available in the city. the parking will be made available because we're going to properly priced the parking in the city. by having these smart readers, we will be ab

of people have asked me, maybe if one of you could indulge us and asked the city attorney -- if we kid a favorable ruling, to what extent does that enable us in the ballot measure fight to stay in whatever is advertised, comments about a community choice and aggregation are off limits. many people are curious about what that would be. >> any other public comment? public comment is closed. i could paraphrase potentially but it depends how eager the city's office would like to weigh in. i think that there are tactical decisions. >> thank you. i don't know that some of the things that should be said about this are things that should be said in open session given the nature of some of the issues involved. i think that for strategic and other reasons not to engage in that kind of discussion in open session. i want to thank the city attorney's office for being proactive. the strategy is the correct strategy and i think it sends a pretty good message to peachy andy that you cannot have your cake and eat it too. you cannot say something to the public utilities commission and then do the comple

that is. [applause] >> thank you for sharing your experience with us. diane? >> thank you and thank you all for coming. i want to tell you about my journey of how i came to be a volunteer. in my professional career, i started off as an elementary school teacher. after a couple of years, i went on that 30 years of government service, in social security and this agency. the height of my professional career was working with singers, educating them on what benefits they were entitled to, or helping them to resolve an issue with social security or medicare. during my years with this agency, i also worked in many activities that are classified as anti-fraud activities. once i was hired and looking for something to do was a volunteer, i found that the work of the senior medicare patrol would allow me to continue that which i enjoyed the most -- working with singers and fighting fraud in health care. seniors are concerned about what happens in health care. it is one of the most critical aspects in their lives. it is their main social activity when they go to the doctor. they listen to all the a
for the health that it gives. so it seemed to be a natural plant to share. >> though they may look the same to us, there are actually about 400 varieties of cacti, and while not all are edible, john does grow an edible variety called nopalea grande. during peak season, he is shipping upwards of 3,000 pounds of the plant at a time, and while some go to pet-food stores for tortoises to enjoy, most of the plants here are used for human consumption. so john has a grading system he uses when harvesting. >> we have several different grades, depending on what the consumer wants. this is grade-a, tender, beautiful, exquisite, baby-vegetable cactus, shipped with ultimate care in packing. this would be grade-b, also for the gourmand, but a little larger. not as much packing material in there to protect it. this is a good grace-c, very good for the ultimate consumer, easy to prepare and clean. you've got a lot of food value per leaf. >> grown on hillsides with plenty of sun and well-drained soil, the plants love to grow close together, and from planting to harvest, it can take months even years tc get full
the infrastructure district does, but for those of you who are familiar with re-development law. the i.f.c. allows us to capture a portion of the property tax. as property values rise, that increment of rise is captured for the district. i wanted to ensure that as we capture this new increase in property values for the benefit of a specific limited geographic area, be aware that necessarily diverts funding from the city an general fund. a portion of this new commitment is made possible by the zoning changes in the eastern district areas, but only a portion of the property tax revenues should be diverted to the area plan needs. this would enable continued money to the general if you said to ensure city-wide services. the commission recommended this committee study the effects on the general fund revenues and to ensure the city as a whole maintains a well-funded base. supervisor maxwell: is there anything in the resolution that would prohibit that? do we need to call it out specifically? i thought in some ways when we said it is now time to broaden our discussion to cover all the plan areas in the city
. this panel invited us into a very unsettling way of framing the discussion those of us steeped the fight. we assume this is inevitable and we're focussing entirely on how to respond to it's impacts. this is a discussion that we absolutely must have because we're in a race against time. as we know, we're already feelg the impacts of global warming and things going to get worst before better so its the job of global managers to plan for the worst and that's what we're here to talk about today. among the issues, what impacts are we most concerned about, what adaptations are necessary and what models or in the analysis are they planning to do and what initial things do they need for future decisions. our discussion takes place against a political backdrop here in california where leaders in both parties recognized the importance of including global warming in our strategies you know the governors water proposal called for 4 and a half billion dollars. sites reservoir and tell mperance river. together these would provide five hundred thousand acre feet of water supply but their being promoted as
not justify actions using climate change without the science to support them unless their justified for other reasons. i'm going to poke a bear here - a big bear - but he's not in the room so can't kick me out. the governor proposed two new surface reservoirs in california and the large part of the back up justification was issue of climate change and the terrible impact on storage. people are not doing to believe this, not opposed to new damages but i'm apposed to amdams. i think it's a great way to evaluate new,dams or possibilities for them in california it's not good enough reason to build them and that's an important distinction. ironically we're having this same debate in nuclear power. climate change is a great thing to open the debate for nuclear power but by itself, not a good argument to build new nuclear power plants. there's economics, basic global problems, things that have not disperiod. >> climate change is a new justification for doing assessment but not necessarily an argument for doing certain large investments and building things and we have to be careful about building in

the other urban districts, though san diego has matched us in english language arts. in math we are still definitely the highest as compared to the state. so as we feel the pride over these results, we must also always remember that when looking at our african-american students as compared to other urban districts districts of -- urban zrinths, we have the lowest performance, and we should be mindful of that trend. >> the state closed the achievement gap with regards to its latino students but did not do so with regards to its african-american students. in math the state did manage to close the gap -- narrow the gap i should say -- with both the african frown and latino students, just like us. and the last slide, we have been brainstorming with different principles. what could be some of the reasons for our success? we took one pattern, which are the math gains that we are seeing, and tried to break it down from the curriculum to the student level. what we found was in terms of the curriculum, principals have reported, and we have found that the adoption of everyday math curriculum and it
